Ceres High School's youth-laden varsity wrestling team competed against Patterson last Wednesday.
The Bulldogs prevailed, 45-33, on senior night at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.
"Our aggressiveness made up for what we were lacking in experience and technique," Ceres High head coach Steve Festa said.
The Bulldogs' lineup features 14 wrestlers, including seven freshmen and two newcomers to the sport.

The Bulldogs improved to 6-4 on the year and 2-1 in the WAC.
The Tigers dropped to 2-2 in the conference-dual standings.
